As IT Security person, I would not recommend downloading anything even from AARP.Org.

 

Only trust resources you know (never publicly posted, unless .gov).

 

Thank you and stay safe!

Again you need to use the link to Techterms that I provided you. See this, https://techterms.com/definition/https .

 

As you can see it starts with https.

 

I am not sure what the writer of that article is talking about. If there is something to download then Kevin Mitnick should have provided a link.

 

Updated: Here is another link to more information, http://computer.howstuffworks.com/encryption4.htm

I understand your question but even viewing it via the online version, it is not a linked item so I am as baffled as you.

To Whomever:

I'm reading AARP Bulletin, April 2017, Article FRAUDS, SCAMS, RIP-OFFS.

On page 15, rightmost column "WEB SECURITY", item 3 re HTTPS.

The article says "Download it for free online"

What am I downloading?

How do I download "it"?

 

Thanks to anyone who understands my questions and can answer them.
